Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

When the wife's away....

My cousin, who is a huge steak and potatoes guy, is married to a vegetarian. (I know, I know...I don't understand it either.) Anytime she plans to go away he's instantly on the phone making reservations at a steak restaurant for the two of us.   So he calls me up the other night and says "The wife's away; let's get some steaks brother!" This time however, I convinced him to join me for an egg cook. Now he's not new to the egg, but he has never had a steak cooked on one. He says "You know I only get steak once or twice a year and I want to make it worth my wild." Way to heap on the pressure Cuz. I promise him a great meal and start trolling the forum for a good steak cook. I finally decide on flank cook.   The next day I purchase a really nice cut and marinate it over night with olive oil, garlic, shallots and rosemary. Take it out the following day, wipe off the excess marinade and fire up the egg. While I'm waiting, I start the potatoes and set up the greens for a quick steam. Once the egg was up to around 500, I slap that beautiful flank on to the hot egg and sear it till I get a 130 reading on the Therma. On a side note...Is there any better sound then hearing a juicy steak sizzle when you put it on the egg? Not for me! Anyway back to the cook. I pull the flank and let it rest while I finish up the potatoes and steam the green beans. After about 10 minutes I slice the flank on a nice bias, plate and pair it with a couple Victory Hopdevils.   The verdict? Well his wife already has a planned trip in Sept and he's made reservations for another egg cook.
I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me.
